The best fullscreen addon for android FF.
Causes a black bar to the top of the page, can't even uninstall it from system homepage (if it's not long enough to scroll).
Great addon, thanks!
One small thing, if there is a meta refresh tag, after the refresh there is a black bar where the address bar should go. I managed to fix it by toggling fullscreen like this:
this._window.fullScreen = false;
this._window.fullScreen = true;
I've found this plugin to be exactly what I wanted to maximize my screen space. I particularly like the "swipe from left edge" to go back feature which feels quite intuitive.
I would have preferred "swipe from right edge" to go forward, but I'm slowly getting used to this plugin's "swipe to left edge". I don't know why the author hasn't chosen to use the right edge. Perhaps they are planning on using that for switching tabs? That'd make sense, since, after the "Back" button, switching tabs is the second most common reason people (by which I mean "me") use the location bar.
The current version (as of April 2016) has a major bug, but it can be worked around. Sometimes the location bar is replaced by a black bar and it is no longer possible to get the location bar back. (Swipe from the top stops working as does scrolling.) For people who don't have "menu" buttons on their phones (again, meaning "me"), this is a serious problem.
Fortunately, there is a workaround. You can install another Mozilla plugin called "Full Screen" which lets you press and hold anywhere on the page to bring up an option to "Exit Full Screen". Once you do that, this plugin will start working properly again.
Sure, it hides the address bar - but Firefox does that anyway as soon as you scroll down. As for "full screen" it's a joke. It simply blacks out the bottom icons, it doesn't actually gain any extra screen area. Complete BS false advertising.
Those with issues, just make sure to actually swipe from/to the actual EDGE of the screen. If horizontal/vertical movement does NOT touch the EDGE of screen* the action it fails. Aside from this (not so) minor UI issue it does what it says it does.
*Vertical Swipe @ TOP EDGE
*Horizontal Swipe @ LEFT EDGE
Address bar hidden nicely but only sometimes appears when scrolling to top. Renders Firefox pretty much unusable.
behavior is completely random
Отлично, все работает - вебстраница на 100 % площади экрана.
This needs to be updated to address issues mentioned in other reviews. I would prefer that Android's info bar not be hidden by default (I don't think this can be disabled). The back/forward gestures are a nice feature. Please update this addon, you have an excellent concept and a great start.
Nice, but it needs a better way to show menu bar other than swiping up and then down in the upper corners. Sometimes it takes two minutes just for it to work, and pressing menu>new tab doesn't work because the Top Sites/Bookmarks/History page has no list of current tabs to navigate to (this would be a good idea). Instead of the swipe up/down functionality, maybe just pulling down to show top bar, a la Twitter/FB app refresh gesture, might work nicely. Or a menu option to show menu bar.
address bar hidden forever
How and where do you report bugs?
On Android 2.3.7 this add-on does not have the desired effect: it makes disappear the address bar, but no space gain is achieved... the bar is not there, the space is empty but unused; the site rendered windows does not scroll up, just a waste of screen real-estate. Also the main android status bar is blanked and empty, that effect is really not what I want. The main Android status bar should not be touched, I still want to see all the info that is there.
enables full screen, but doesn't work very well - it's easy to inadvertently bring down the address bar when scrolling a page and the content jumps around making it a pain. Once the bar is down, it's impossible to get it back up - you need to reload the page. Why can't you just have a menu item for entering/exiting full screen?
This works very well, but could you please add an option to disable the "Back" gesture when swiping from left edge of the screen? It's over sensitive and I end up going to previous page when trying to navigate on a zoomed in page. Thanks.
Works well so far. As others have mentioned, seems a little tricky to get the swipe correct at first, but I think I'll get the hang of it.
Says I can't install it for my Sony Xperia P but it still does and works pretty well, has a bit of glitches but it works :DI only regret it doesn't have options.Anyway thanks a lot for this share.
funciona muy bien, pero preferiría otro método para volver a ver la barra de búsqueda, tal vez un botón pequeño en alguna esquina..
A bit buggy.
Transition between normal and fullscreen is rather choppy. Occasionally it gets stuck in fullscreen and there is no way to get to the URL bar, other than restarting the app. (galaxy note 2)
Nevertheless this app is a real enhacement. No idea why firefox mobile doesn't have this fumctionality on its own, that URL bar is unreasonably huge.
This addon is so much better than "Full screen mobile"! Since i had installed Auto fullscreen, my Firefox browser was perfected on my Android phone!
It's a bit difficult at first, but with a little practice works. Very useful the navigation by history.
Great add on works with my Moto Bionic
This should be a default feature in FF for Android. Thanks for the addon! Waiting for stability and performance updates. :)
